Day Engine – plan your day away

Hey. This page is more than 8 years old! The content here is probably outdated, so bear that in mind. If this post is part of a series, there may be a more recent post that supersedes this one.

Day Engine was a web app I created for the 2013 Google Cloud Developers’ Competition. It fared badly in a kind of no-useful-feedback-at-all kind of way. Ho hum, never mind.

Website still operational here


Day-out setup page

It creates a day-out for you, based on things like:

  1. Where you are
  2. How long you want to be out
  3. Whether you are on foot or not
  4. How much you want to spend.

Keep on meaning to revisit it, but feedback from one judge “App does nothing” rears its ugly head and I put it off.


Results for a day in Auckland, NZ. Surprising because there are only 2 things to do in Auckland.

Despite the negative feedback I really cannot help thinking its a good idea. If you are interested in it, get in touch eh?
